Fire ban pertains to Yellowknife parks

Not the best news to hear in the middle of July.

Due to dry conditions, a total fire ban at Fred Henne and Yellowknife River Territorial Park is being implemented, effective immediately.

The parks confirmation comes a day after Yellowknife’s Fire Chief, John Fredericks, implemented a mandatory open air burning ban in the city.

Updates to the bans will be posted to NWT Parks or ITI websites or social media accounts.
